“THE HUMAN HIGHWAY” – Playing the music of Neil Young.
Formed for a 2014 show at the Newport Record Club series in Fremantle to play the songs of one of the most influential and idiosyncratic singer/songwriters of our time, the ‘Human Highway’ is fronted by long time lovers of Neil Young, David Hyams and Rose Parker. The 6-piece line up also includes bassist Roy Martinez,
drummer Russell Wilson, fiddler Adam Gare, and Jeremy Threlfall on pedal steel and guitar.
Covering music from the beginning of Young’s solo career in the late ’60s through to the 21st century, the band is equally adept at capturing the essence of Young’s two primary styles: from the gentle folk and country-rock of albums like “Comes A Time”, to the electric guitar driven rock of the Crazy Horse days. They have continued to play shows at the Newport hotel in Fremantle, and more recently Freo Social, as well as sell out shows at Perth’s Quarry Amphitheatre (500 capacity) in 2018 and 2019.
The band features:
David Hyams – acoustic and electric guitars, vocals
Rose Parker – acoustic guitar, vocals
Roy Martinez – bass, keyboards, vocals
Russell Wilson – drums
Jeremy Threlfall – pedal steel
Adam Gare – fiddle
